Nik Rabinowitz's background
Rabinowitz grew up on a farm in Constantia, Cape Town, South Africa, in 1977, the son of an accountant father (who later turned to pottery) and an architect mother (who later turned to interior decorating). He had a solidly upper-middle-class background, and remarks that his childhood was filled with loving support. Rabinowitz studied business science at the University of Cape Town, and graduated with honours.
After college he changed course, joining a theatre company and touring Africa. He became well known in his home country as the presenter for Coca-Cola Megamillions Gameshow on SABC 1, and also did adverts for MWEB and several other high-profile national and international companies. He's performed at Vodacom's Funny Festivals, the Edinburgh Festival, and a variety of stand-up venues in London (including Royal Albert Hall). He presents the South African radio shows Cape Talk and The Week That Wasn't, and has contributed his voice acting talents to several radio shows and other media.
In addition to the UK and South Africa, Rabinowitz performs for crowds in Holland, the US, Canada, Australia and Zimbabwe. His stand-up shows have included The Life and Times of Klasie Kakpraat, Anyone Seen My Goat?, One Man One Goat and 3 Wiser Men (alongside Marc Lottering and Riaad Moosa).
His humour is rooted solidly in his Jewish identity, and he identifies himself, with his tongue in his cheek, as "Africa's funniest Jew". He's known for his outlandish, irreverent jokes, which skewer anyone, regardless of nationality, ethnicity or station in life.
Nik Rabinowitz's personal life
Rabinowitz speaks fondly of his family, and has stated his plans to write a book about his father's life. He has two sons with his wife Debbie, who is a medical doctor.
He has been candid about his early history as a performer, describing an intense shyness and stage fright that greatly affected his early career. To get over his fears, he took several classes on public speaking, and for a time he performed as different characters in an attempt to deal with his anxiety.
Despite giving up his dreams of academia, Nik Rabinowitz is impressively educated: he speaks several languages, including Xhosa, and regularly presents in multiple languages on South African television.
